Skills

Hey and welcome to my profile!

My name is Sebastian but all my friends call me Sebo, I am 41 years old and live in the heart of Düsseldorf and for the last one and a half decade of my career I have earned my living as a creative manager and designer for various brands and companies in the fashion, sportswear and FMCG industries. I describe myself as a very creative but always focussed and organized problem solver, literal thinker and achiever, with a great sense for straightforward and clear aesthetics and a strong eye for the perfect balance of color, shape and materials of new design compositions, creative ideas and visual concepts. My handwriting is characterized by a very clear, clean and timeless graphical style, always mixed with a little touch of art and craftsmanship. The commercial and consumer-focussed look of my handwriting finds its deep roots in commercial western graphic design standards and typographic and photographic design fundamentals of the last seven decades. 

I offer you over one and a half decade of experience and consistency in providing creative on- and offline graphic solutions that shape the look of the world we know. I am specialized in creating perfectly tailored visual identities, logos, illustrations, prints and graphics for  mid-scale to big businesses and projects from the fields of fashion, FMCG, sportswear, music, lifestyle and entertainment. Together we will develop creative solutions and new approaches to complex visual tasks and lead your project to long-term success and an appealing corporate image.

In order to constantly expand my skills in the areas of UX and UI design and to develop an even better awareness of the individual motivations and personal needs of my end customers, I decided a few years ago to complete a training as a nonmedical practitioner specializing in psychotherapy in addition to my work as a designer. This new and valuable knowledge enables me not only to develop an even better user journey and experience for your project, taking into account completely new ways of looking at things, insights and starting points, but also to completely develop a perfect visual appearance for your online project. Furthermore, it helps me to fully understand your very personal wishes and requirements as well as those of your end customers and thus interpret them perfectly into a successful project.

"Sehr zuvorkommender und professioneller Designer. Die Designs die für meine Firma erstellt wurden übertreffen meine Erwartungen.
Sehr gerne arbeite ich und meine Firma auch in Zukunft mit Herrn Dumjahn zusammen!"
Inhaber (M. Koch)
"Ich habe Sebastian mit der Gestaltung des Logos für meinen Plattenladen beauftragt und dies keinen Moment lang bereut. Vom ersten bis zum letzten Schritt fühlte ich mich in den besten Händen und stets gut beraten. Die Zusammenarbeit verlief zu jeder Zeit positiv, freundlich, zielführend und zu einem absolut fairen Preis. Ich kann Sebastian und seine kreative Arbeit mit bestem Gewissen weiterempfehlen."
Inhaber (Nicole Schroer)
"Offen und neugierig auf alles, dabei entwaffnend ehrlich und selbstkritisch, ob es nicht noch einen Tick schöner und besser geht. Es ist ein Vergnügen, mit Sebastian zusammenzuarbeiten.
Kein überflüssiges Fach-Kauderwelsch, dafür unangestrengter Austausch und ein sehr aufmerksames Ohr für Zwischentöne, um die eine Lösung zu finden, die eben nicht auf der Hand liegt und 08/15 ist."
Head of Communications (Peter Austin)
"Wir haben Herrn Dumjahn für die grafische und visuelle Umsetzung eines internen Workshops zur Verkaufsförderung unseres Produkts EYLEA® gebucht und sind mit der bisherigen Zusammenarbeit absolut zufrieden. Herr Dumjahn unterstützt uns bei der visuellen Gestaltung komplexer Themen aus dem Bereich Pharma und fungiert darüber hinaus aus externer Ideen und Impulsgeber mit seiner stets kreativen und unvoreingenommene Perspektive auf zum Teil sehr trockene Sachverhalte."
Systemadministrator, Webmaster (Florian Malzer)
"Sebatian Dumjahn hat das Logo unserer Schule (www.cvo-ms.de) designt und uns bei der Corporate Identity unserer Schule unterstützt. Die Zusammenarbeit und Kommunikation verlief stets zuverlässig, pragmatisch und unkompliziert.

Ich kann seine Arbeit als Grafiker, sowie seine freundliche, positive und kommunikative Art nur weiterempfehlen!

Beste Grüße aus Nürnberg!"
